Sheryl Underwood gets emotional about Duggar molestation scandal

An emotional Sheryl Underwood blasts the Duggar family on The Talk. As a victim of child molestation, Underwood has some very strong opinions about the 19 Kids and Counting scandal, slamming parents Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar over the way they covered up son Josh’s molestation of his sisters.

“I’m probably the only person at this table that went through that,” she told her co-hosts on The Talk, her eyes welling with tears. “And I went through that at 3, 4, 5 years old. You know something is wrong. And if nobody listens to you, and nobody’s going to stop it, whether I’m asleep or not — I didn’t sleep, I learned to stay up as long as I could. I may sleep at school, because nobody’s gonna protect me. So I have to protect myself.”

The Queen of Comedy went on to address this week’s Fox News interview with Jim Bob and Michelle and how it demonstrated that by trying to protect their son, they betrayed their victimized daughters.

“They helped the world to see what happens to people where they’re in some type of family structure where the people you’re supposed to trust and protect you seem to be the co-conspirator in your violation, [and] seem to rationalize sexual assault and molestation,” she said.

With tears in her eyes, she continued. “The thing about this that hurts so much is you feel that you have no help,” she said. “I thank God for my older brothers, who took an action on my behalf.”

Overcome with emotion, Underwood’s sentiment was transferred to her co-hosts; even guest Carnie Wilson could be seen wiping tears from her eyes.

But Underwood was not alone in her feelings. She received a standing ovation from the studio audience. “These parents are wrong,” she said. “There’s no way you can say this as parents… families gotta protect families, and don’t rationalize violation.”

    GLAD TO SEE SOMEONE out the duggar parents jim bob and whats her neme ., arent they mormons? while they so busy poppin out kids they were numb of the fact , to many kids cause issues they could not possible know of , they seem to have been separating the boys from the girls that may have been the issue and the children didnt bond to well when around one another , you have to teach kids to be siblings they dont come out the womb knowing they should not sexy their sister .. i mean its wrong but the duggars set it up this way ., boys have to be taught to respect females . and to love thier sisters , this has happen in many families and never was told .., good thing they told someone they could have not told anyone about it .. i respect them or getting their son help ., but reality tv need to spot personify glorifying these people without a background investigation into them …. most got horrific issue from their own lives .. and pass … sick of reality tv … apollo on RHOA didnt surprise me either cause this i where tv i headed down .. big time .
